Blue Lizard...

Travis Frank

I love chasing moving objects with the camera.  Scenic shots are great, but my true thrill comes when I get close enough to photograph some kind of critter.  This is a shot of a blue lizard.  I was walking across a desert landscape in New Mexico when he shot out from beneath a sage bush.  Because of the rattle snake scare and other dangerous critters, I jumped a solid 2 feet.  When I came to my senses, I quickly grabbed the camera and followed him until he would stop.  Its called a New Mexico Whiptail, and they are lightning fast.  This lil' guy was about 6 inches in length.  I've seen other lizards before, but I really liked this one because of the unique colors.  You aren't seeing things, it really is neon blue.  Talk about sweet!  I was jacked to get this shot!
